To Be Or Not To Be

To Be Or Not To Be To be or not to be is what you want to be. If you are not, than don't be - but be all that you want to be. If you see only what you want to see, than you don't see what you need to see. Don't cry later, because you didn't see. To be like someone else - you never will be. You are different you see. If you don't try to be, what you want to be - than you never will be. 06/23/2013 written by Lucilla M. Carrillo

    Every thing and every being have their own identity, so no one can be what others are. Very nice philosophy my poetess friend you have penned. Good luck in the contest. Loved always, bl

    This is quite the philosophical write my friend, you have presented a masterful poem this evening! I really have been amazed by this repetitive piece at which you bring the idea of oneself! The idea of oneness melts withing your poem here Lucilla! What a grandiose write my friend, Great work!!

    A plea for self-actualization, expressed repetitively and with a pleasing cadence and super 'be'/ 'see' rhyming! BRAVO Lucilla!! Best wishes, Keith
